Process:

  • Contact us for an initial meeting.
  • We assess the viability of your structure to support the weight of a green roof.
  • Decide “go” or “no-go”, select system type and program options.
  • We apply for and obtain permit and rebate.
  • We install your green roof.
  • We register Stormwater Retention Credits (SRCs) if applicable.
  • You then enjoy your new green roof! (Leave the maintenance to us.)

 

WHY?

 

The District Department of the Environment is currently compensating property owners who install green roofs and other technologies to help protect the Anacostia and Potomac Rivers. Learn more at http://green.dc.gov/greenroofs. Washington, DC, like several older East Coast cities, utilizes a combined sewer system, a popular concept in the 1800’s. This system combines stormwater and raw sewage in the same pipes, which convey to the Blue Plains water treatment plant. Because the system combines stormwater with sewage, increased stormwater runoff causes CSOs (combined sewer overflows) in which raw sewage is dumped into Rock Creek Park, the Potomac River, and the Anacostia River. Green roofs are an important tool for reducing stormwater runoff and minimize CSOs.

 

WHEN?

 

The green roof rebate is available now for 2015. Applications are based on first come first served basis. A quick format application is completed first to hold a place until a detailed project scope can be submitted for approval of funding.
